Israel Certifies Bell 429

16th Country To Approve Increased Gross Weight For The Helo

Bell Helicopter said Thursday that the Bell 429 has earned Civil Aviation Authority of Israel (CAAI) type acceptance to operate in Israel, as well as approval to fly at an increased maximum gross weight of 7,500 lbs. Israel marks the sixteenth country to approve the increased maximum gross weight. The CAAI's approval is based on Transport Canada's certification earlier this year and allows the aircraft to carry an additional 500 lbs. of fuel and/or payload.

"We could not be more pleased to have Israel's endorsement of the Bell 429 so we can now better serve the multi-mission needs of our customers in Israel," said Danny Maldonado, Bell Helicopter's executive vice president of Commercial Sales and Marketing. "The approval of the increased gross weight also allows customers to use the full mission capabilities of the Bell 429's design."

Transport Canada approved operation of the Bell 429 at 7,500 lbs in January 2012 after conducting an extensive technical evaluation. The increased gross weight of the Bell 429 will allow customers to take full advantage of the aircraft's capabilities, and operate longer and heavier missions. To date, The Bell 429 increased gross weight has been approved by Argentina, Australia, Brazil, Canada, China, Ecuador, India, Israel, Malaysia, Mexico, New Zealand, Nigeria, Thailand, Venezuela and Vietnam.

The Bell 429 is one of the most advanced light twin helicopters ever developed. It delivers exceptional speed, range and hover performance, and offers operators a state-of-the-art single pilot IFR helicopter with top user-rated in-service support. The powerful and reliable Bell 429 serves the full spectrum of segments including air medical, law enforcement, oil & gas, utility, and corporate.

The Bell 429 is certified for Single or Dual Pilot IFR, Cat. A / JAROPS Performance Class 1 at maximum gross weight; has a state of the art fully-integrated glass cockpit; an advanced drive system that delivers power and superb performance; best in class WAAS navigation & IFR capability; and is the first helicopter certified through the MSG-3 process resulting in reduced maintenance costs for operators. The increased gross weight configuration includes Helicopter Terrain Awareness Warning System (HTAWS), a radar altimeter, cockpit voice/flight data recorder and forward flashing lights.
